Catering Works Raleigh, NC – Reliable Wedding Caterers
As a 22 year old graduate from Johnson & Wales University with a Culinary Arts degree, Jill Santa-Lucia wasn’t having any luck finding a job in a male-dominated industry. So she “hired herself,” as CEO and owner of Catering Works. Thirty years after the fact, Catering Works has consistently grown their stellar reputation as a versatile catering company that does it all.
Chef Santa-Lucia and Executive Chef Rich Carter have both racked up an impressive roster of local and national awards (including a prize 1969 Stingray Corvette, but that’s a whole ‘nother story). With Jill’s sister and VP, Lorin Laxton, this top-notch team oversees a multifaceted Raleigh event and catering company. Their latest two endeavors include a global dining series called Culinary Adventures that takes place at their own industrial venue, The Laurelbrook. Another popular venture is their Personal Chef Meals to private home delivery. As longtime members of the community, they are active supporters of Interfaith Food Shuttle, NC Food Bank and a long list of charitable organizations. Catering Works has also been active in the green catering movement.
Mediterranean Inspired Gracing Table by Catering Works
Catering Works wowed our senses by designing a colorful mediterranean inspired grazing table. Imagine the look of awe on your wedding guests faces upon seeing this fantastic spread! Priceless. The table includes saffron couscous with grilled lamb chops, moroccan kofta with yogurt tahini sauce, a trio of hummus – carrot, black bean and lemon. Other dishes include roasted carrots with chermoula sauce, arugula salad with pomegranates, orange supremes and pistachios, stuffed endive with fattoush. Our mouthes are watering for a bite of lavish, pita and papadum, fresh mission black figs, and friend chickpea and dolmas.
The Whole Package
Catering Works can join together with their Pastry Works (bakery) and Blossom Works (floral and decor) departments to plan and execute a beautiful, turn-key wedding day, or do any singular part. Their couples we have featured describe the great tastings, easy planning, amazing food and stellar service. As Jill likes to say, we want you to be a “happy guest at your own party.”cat
